Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  Freeport LNG Development (FLNG) has requested a modification to their existing Department of the Army maintenance dredge permit to include the use of hopper dredges in addition to the currently authorized hydraulic and mechanical methods.  The maintenance dredge permit authorizes dredging of the entire FLNG Basin (both Dock 1 and Dock 2).  Dredging conducted via a hydraulic cutter head dredge and/or mechanical clamshell will utilize to a dump scow barge.  The barge will be transported to the Freeport Harbor Maintenance ODMDS where the material will be dumped.  Maintenance dredge cycles utilizing a hopper dredge will not require a barge for transportation of the dredged material.  Each maintenance dredging cycle is expected to take 3 months to complete.  Submittals to evaluate effects of dredging and disposal of dredge material will be conducted, as required by Section 103 of the MPRSA.  FLNG has estimated that maintenance dredge cycles will occur annually and are estimated to remove no more than approximately 500,000 cubic yards.
